Your Effortlessly Classic Style
We love the way that Julie’s style is elegant, yet approachable. She chooses flattering and classic pieces but adds the right pops of color and accessories to make her outfits fun and unique. As a busy working mom, she’s also really smart about her clothing ensembles by picking pieces you can dress up or down as you need to. But as much as we love Julie’s style, we love the way that she brings such an effervescent joy into her relationships with her clients, friends, and family.
